Still pretty good for a pet store fish ;p and the spoonhead problem is actually recessive (something I learned mwaha lol)

Yeah, I guess so. Does recessive mean it won't be passes down? And I don't know his genes. ._. I think there was some Grizzly in him from his scales but, eh... He did his dance to say thanks! :O

If you bred a spoonhead to one with better form there would be little to no chance of it being passed down - as far as I know. :p

Lol I love the little dances!!

That's good. Once I start breeding, Lebron would be too old. D: I also don't know his genes. I'll look at my LFS. I saw this MG CT and this blue Butterfly HM. They seemed to have great form, the spikes of the CT weren't curled either. Lebron does his dances when he seems happy. :3

Spoonheads are not necessarily recessive. One of my remaining batch are from a non soophead pair but 50% are spoon heads. The other was from a spoon head male - they're still in dark tubs so I can't really tell yet, but they don't seem to be spoonheads.

I suggest you concentrate on one type - since you said people are more interested in form, try improving form as best you can. If they like vibrant colors, work with dragons and metallics (namely platinum, copper, red dragon) - cross breed them and you will end up with a range of colors.

If you have the space and time - work out a rotating tank system. By 2 weeks, this fry goes here and you could use the tank for a new spawn. By the next 2 weeks, the first fry moves to another tank or jar and the second batch moves to their tank ...... and so on. You can breed every 2 weeks, begin selling at 3 - 4 months. A barrack system would make your life easier (less work on water changes). But Be sure you can rehome them.

Good luck.

Thanks for the info. The rotation was actually my plan :p I have tons of tanks. When I go to edmonton I will get a barrack system hehe I offer something stores do not. Delivery, quality, and true customer service. ;) once to twice a month to edmonton, delivered to (or if they would like, somewhere to meet) and caresheets provided.
